5 Country with fastest Muslim Population Development

Earlier this week, the Telegraph reported the latest data on the development of Muslims in the UK. For the first time this year, the number of Muslims in Queen Elizabeth’s country reached three million.

Its development has been very rapid in the last decade, considering that in 1991, the Muslim population in the United Kingdom was only 950 thousand people.

The growth of Islam is triggered by several factors. Two main aspects are the high birth rate of Muslim families, as well as the flow of Muslim immigrants in the UK.

Regardless of the specific reasons in each country, the demographic situation of the UNITED KINGDOM is in line with the trends recorded by the Pew Research Center survey institute from the United States. Pew says Muslims will make up 34.9 percent of the world’s total population after 2070. This is supported by an increase in the Muslim population of 2.2 percent per year.

That is, for the first time in history, the number of Muslims in the religion will surpass the adherents of Christianity that for several centuries was dominant.

By 2050 the world’s Christian population (2.9 billion) will be nearly offset by Muslims (2.8 billion). This is unprecedented in history

1. India, The country with the fastest Growing Muslim population

This is the candidate of the country with the largest muslim population in the world, passing through Indonesia. Pew stated that if there is no significant change in terms of demographics, it is estimated that by 2050 India will officially become the country with the most Muslim population in the world.

The situation in India is influenced by the dense population of both Hindus and Muslims. The age of the adherents of the two religions in the Ganges River Country is also very young, more than 30 percent under 30 years old. Prpyeksi increases the Muslim population to 18.4 percent (equivalent to 311 million people) until 2050, much higher than other religions.

Today, Muslims in India number only 177 million. Only one million people are at odds from the world’s second-largest Muslim-majority country, Pakistan.

The majority of India’s population remains Hindu. But the number of Muslims in India has also increased dramatically beyond Indonesia

2. England (Western country)

Britain is one of the fastest growing Western countries in the world. As outlined at the beginning of this article, the Muslim population in Queen Elizabeth’s country now reaches three million people.

In addition to the birth and flow of immigrants, the Islamic community in the UK is also growing due to conversions. According to the Uk Census, at least 6,000 Britons have converted to Islam every year. Most of these conversions are made by British women.

The largest percentage of Muslims are in the capital City of London. The large Muslim community lives in East London, reaching 45.6 percent.

As for the largest Muslim population outside the capital, it is located in Blackburn, Lancashire, with 29.1 per cent of the population.

3. Russia

Islam in Russia is the second largest religion after Orthodox Christianity, covering 21-28 million people. That’s equivalent to 20 percent of the total population of the Red Bear Country. The increase in the number of Muslims in the former Soviet Union is projected to reach 14.4 percent until 2030.

Pew predicted Russia would become one of the world’s most populous Muslim countries. Indications have been seen for the past five years, with the rapid construction of mosques in the capital Moscow.

“Moscow is slowly adapting to become europe’s largest Muslim-populated city,” said social researcher Alexei Malashenko.

The Islamic community in Russia has so far been divided into two major groups. The first group was around the Volga-Urals, Western Siberia, and Moscow. The second group is in the North Caucasus. The largest Muslim ethnic groups in Russia are from tatars (7 million), Bashkirs (1.5 million), and Chechens (1 million).

5. China, One of country with the fastest Growing Muslim population

The growth in the number of Muslims is very rapid in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Islam is the majority religion of uighurs, Hui, and Kazakhs. At the census five years ago, their numbers had reached 50 million. That’s three times the census in 2000.

However, it must be admitted that the growth of this number is not directly proportional to religious freedom. Ethnic Uighurs in Xinjiang province are subjected to routine repression by Beijing’s central government.

Uighurs are accused of having a “rebellious” tendency. China’s economic policies that prioritize han ethnicity are worsening the situation in Xinjiang.
